Up to 40 channels are available with the DMS800, which can be used simultaneously. High-end antenna system and multichannel accessories are available to suit the system to individual needs. Built-in HARMAN HiQnet™ network remote control and monitoring can be done from a PC via HiQnet Audio Architect™ software, Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod® or Soundcraft Vi Series consoles.
